Sustainable Agriculture Sciences
Graham's key areas of interest are environmental life cycle analysis (LCA) models and sustainable agriculture. He is currently working on an LCA of pasture based beef production systems at the North Wyke Farm Platform, having previously carried out an LCA of commercial pig production in Ireland. The novelty of the current project is based on environmental comparisons of nutritional quality (for example, omega-3 fatty acids) rather than quantity (as in weight) of meat produced, as is typical in the majority of LCA studies. In addition, primary data from automatic flume systems (measuring water quality) and greenhouse gas chambers are being incorporated into the LCA models, which greatly enhance the accuracy.
